About me

Location DC Suburbs, Virginia, United States
Introduction I am a Southern Girl, and a total and complete goofball who likes to laugh out loud, most often at myself. I don't enjoy exercise, but I *would* wear roller skates every day if it made any sense at all. I'm an expert bargain shopper, a bookworm, and a liberal feminist. I usually don't know what day it is, but I can, more than likely, answer any music question you might have, and am good at math (except when splitting the check at a restaurant-- all math skills escape me then). Most kids I know think I'm about six years-old, but that I got a grown-up's body by accident, and most grown-ups I know probably wouldn't disagree with that. I love to fish, have a photographic memory, and think that Paul Carrack, Paul Rodgers, Myles Kennedy, and Pat Monahan are the best, most under-appreciated singers in the history of Rock. Let's see. What else can I say? Two rules I live by: No ordeals. No drama. Otherwise, I say why stand when you can sit? And, good lord, why sit if you can LIE DOWN?
Interests I'm into going to/watching movies, hearing good music, eating good food, and laughing my fanny off as much as possible. I am positively addicted to Bad Television just as much as I am to Good Television, but have no idea what day/time anything comes on, so don't ask me-- I leave that all up to my DVR. I'd probably leave my husband for Keith Olbermann, Jack Black, and/or Bill Murray, and would actually think about it for awhile before turning down Eddie Vedder. I think snow is pretty, yet stupid, and I live and breathe for Beach Time. And bacon. I'd do just about anything for bacon.
Favorite Movies The Usual Suspects, High Fidelity, Too Wong Foo..., Lonesome Dove, Memento, The Birdcage, School of Rock, Gia, The Station Agent, Boys Don't Cry, Secretary, Boogie Nights, Sordid Lives, Batman Begins, The Royal Tenenbaums, Tootsie, Napoleon Dynamite, Waiting for Guffman, Dreamgirls, Private Parts, Bandits, Hedwig & the Angry Inch. But I think my all-time favorite is Lost in Translation.

If you were a wrestler, what would be your finishing move?

Whichever John Travolta dance move I'm in the mood for. From any movie- even Stayin Alive.
